I just returned from High Point Market and have so much to share, but before I start posting on my fab finds in High Point, I wanted to share my exciting news!!! I was chosen as a Legends Ambassador for 2014!!! I have never attended the Legends event but have heard rave reviews from all my designer friends. Have you ever been? If not, what are you waiting for? Buy your tickets today here!
What is La Cienega Design Legends Event you ask?
"One of the most anticipated design events of the year, Legends is a three day celebration of design each year in May. It is the largest design event on the West coast. Top editors come together with VIP's and interior design, art, fashion and architecture tastemakers, for keynote discussions, cocktail parties, reception, exhibitions, book signings, personal appearances and special events in California’s hippest design district"
This years event marks the 6th year for the La Cienega Legends Event. Fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg, New York interior designer David Kleinberg and many other A-List designers from around the country will decorate the window for Legends 2014 on the theme Novel Interiors: Storytelling by Design. Eleven of the most prominent design magazines in the United States, Europe and California are slated for participation. Mark your calendars for May 7th - 9th. If you can't attend make sure you follow my exploits. I promise to be where the action is during the event.
This year’s LEGENDS theme – Novel Interiors: Storytelling by Design – is already resonating through the design community. The cornerstone of LEGENDS is the windows. Top designers are being invited to transform the windows of the LCDQ members’ storefronts inspired by the theme of LEGENDS –books and novels. Diane Von Furstenberg has chosen “Out of Africa” as the theme for her window. Designer Timothy Corrigan’s window at Fuller & Roberts will be themed to “Valley of the Dolls,” Jeffrey Hitchcock – “Fahrenheit 451” at Downtown, Sheldon Harte of Harte Brownlee – “The Invisible Man” at Mecox, and architect Paul Williger – Edith Wharton’s “The House of Mirth” at Renaissance Design Studio. There are many surprises to come
